2.Multiple Entry
This category allows an applicant to enter and depart the country on several occasions during and up to its period of validity.

3.Transit  Visitor Visa
If you are coming from a country which requires visiting visas to enter Canadian territory, this category becomes necessary when you visit en route to another destination. In Canada visas of this kind allow you to spend no more than 48 hours in the country.

Living and Working In Canada Permanently
For those wishing to live and work in the country on a permanent basis, a range of options exist which confer immediate permanent residency status. Also  Canada immigration service, Citizenship and Immigration in Canada or CIC allows permanent residents to apply for Canadian citizenship following satisfaction of the three-year residency obligation requirement.

Family Visas
An application for a Canadian family Visa in which existing permanent Canadian residents or citizens can sponsor their foreign national relatives for an agreed time (between 3 and 10 years) in the country until they are able to establish themselves is also available.

In Canada visa requirements for family immigrants are not subject to the points system and any Canadian permanent resident of 18 years or more, with sufficient qualifying income, can sponsor a relative in this way.

Sponsoring relatives in this way is usually the quickest route to achieving permanent residency in Canada; it allows for spouse immigration and fiance immigration and permits parents and dependent children under 18 years of age to enter the country.

A study permit for Canada must be applied for as soon as an applicant receives the letter of acceptance from the educational institution. Study permits allow applicants to work part time on campus and seek a renewal from within the country should they decide to continue studying.

Tourism:-
Canadian Visit visas or Tourist visas for Canada allow you to visit for up to six months. Working under any of the following Canadian Tourist visa categories is strictly prohibited, and in some cases, depending on your home country, you may need to obtain a Temporary Resident visa as well.

Canada Work Permit
A work permit for Canada or Canadian work visa is a temporary Canadian immigration service which allows a worker to migrate to Canada to fill a specific position in a particular company.This kind are designed to help Canadian employers who are finding it difficult to fill positions with Canadian permanent residents or Canadian citizens.

Spouse immigration/Partner immigration/Dependents immigration
In Canada visas of this type make provision for marriage immigration and spouse immigration on a temporary basis, and your husband, wife, or common-law partner and dependant children may join you.  However, if they wish to work they will need to submit their own working visa application.

How to find job openings in Canada?

Where is the best place to live in Canada?

It’s simple; if you want to work in Canada, then you should live somewhere in Southern Ontario. Specifically in the “Golden Horse-shoe” area, around the Western end of Lake Ontario. This is where all the jobs are. Trust me, I’ve been living here since the early 2000’s.

Toronto is a busy place ; well, cities around like Milton, Kitchener etc. are ok but this is nothing if you compare it with Montreal. This city is a beauty and more affordable than Toronto & surroundings.

How much can I expect to be paid for my work?

You will mainly find yourself doing odd jobs. These are paid at approximately $9-12 CAD$  per hour. Taxes are deducted from this – approximately 10 – 35%, depending on your income. Our partner organisation will help you to apply for a tax number and also to open a Canadian bank account.

How to Find Job Openings

In some countries, people find jobs primarily through the government or family members. In the Canada, network is more the rule, and it is important for everyone, including international students, to use a wide variety of networking to identify jobs.

About 20% of the jobs that exist in Canada are not advertised in newspapers, trade magazines, or on the Internet. The other 80% of job openings are in the “hidden” job market and are never advertised. These positions are filled by word of mouth. For this reason, it is important to contact as many people as possible to find out about job openings. This technique is called networking. Contacts include friends, classmates, neighbors, family members, professors, alumni, and community members. The Career Services Center has many books on the job search and networking, as well as networking workshops and opportunities.

 Working for local Companies

The best employment prospects for international trained profesional may be with Canadian companies with internatinal branches. International trained profesionals are great assets to Canadian global organizations desiring language skills, respect for diversity, and/or knowledge of overseas economies.

Occupations in Need of International Trained Professionals

According to the November 2008 edition of “Recruiting Trends,” high-tech firms are desperate to hire technically skilled, non-immigrant foreign workers. According to Canada Immigration, from October 2002 to February 2006, work visa petitions were approved in the following areas:
•Health

 •System’s Analysis and Programming (47.4%)

•Electrical/Electronics Engineering (5.4%)

•College and University Education (4.1%)

 •Accountants and Related Occupations (3.7%)

 These statistics suggest that International Trained Profesionals who wish to work in Canada would be wise to study technical subjects in order to increase their chance of employment.

Once you’ve discovered the companies that offered sponsorship or employment visas in the past, contact those companies to request a listing of job openings or internships or set up an informational interview. Even Internships Students who lack experience in their career fields should complete one or more internships while working towards their degrees.

According to “Canada Multinationals and the Foreign MBA,” more than 53% of foreign survey respondents received a job offer from a Canadian company where they completed an internship. Obtaining an internshipin Canada  is important not only in terms of resume building, but in terms of its potential to translate into a full-time job after graduation.

Approaching the Topic of Sponsor Visas with Employers

Many employers are intimidated by the Canadian immigration process and are reluctant to sponsor work visas, or simply have a policy against it. Do not begin an employment interview or letter with an inquiry regarding work sponsorship. Discussions about work sponsorship should come later, either when the employer brings it up or when the applicant is offered a position.

The applicant’s first task in an interview is to convince the employer of his/her suitability for the job. Only later, when an employer is close to making, or has made an offer, should the applicant raise the work sponsorship issue.

Learn about the sponsorship process including hiring and paying for a lawyer. By explaining the simplicity of the sponsorship process, the applicant will increase the likelihood of getting hired.  Seek out companies that have a history of work sponsorship. To identify companies that have sponsored foreign worker in the past , consider the following source:

Hineni Media is the newest paid-subscription site  listing companies that have sponsored work visas within the past several years. The list provides the names of hundreds of companies along with job titles and salary information associated with the work petitions. Clients that have paid for access to this website  can obtain the username and password,  The listing is available to students, includes the following areas: Administrative Occupations; Business Management and Administration; Computer Science and Information Technology; Engineering; Mathematics & Physical Sciences

Additional Advice for International Trained Professionals.

•Market Yourself Positively – It is very important for International students to turn employers’ objections into positives. By virtue of living and studying abroad, International Trained Professionals demonstrate tenacity and resourcefulness. It is important for them to tell employers about the challenges they faced in studying overseas and how theyovercame them. International Trained Profesionals should be prepared to tell employers how hiring them offers more advantages than disadvantages.

Follow these tips:

 •Choose a Major/Specialization in Demand – The demand for employees in technical fields, such asinformation technology and accounting, far outweighs the supply. Therefore, International students who study these subjects may have more opportunities than those select majors in low-demand areas.

•Be Flexible – International Trained Professionals may need to expand their job search by considering jobs outside their desired career. For example, an Information Technology major who would like to do web development may want to search for jobs in web development AND other areas of information technology.

•Patience and Persistence – Although finding employment as an International Trained Professionals can be challenging, it is not impossible. Each year Canada grants almost 70,000 work visas.

•Network with friends, professors, other International Trained Professionals, and attend job fairs.

•Become familiar with visa application processes.

•Volunter or Work for free like interning – the experience may lead to a full-time, paid position

Cómo calificar para la práctica profesional en Ontario

Es la pregunta mas comun! Por lo general es la pregunta que se hacen muchos de los que ya están pensando seriamente en embarcarse en el proceso y una de las que envian aca

Desde mi optica, lo primero que me preguntaria es si puedo trabajar en mi profesion una vez en Canada como
immmigrante.

Tenga en cuenta que la certificacion en las distintas carreras profesionales o su version acreditada canadiense no son nada facil ademas de que cada provincia cada provincia tiene instituticiones* que regulan y determinan quienes pueden ejercer o no.

Asi es el caso de las enfermeras, medicos, ingenieros, abogados, arquitectos, odontólogos, etc. Muchos deben pasar por exámenes y a veces hasta llegan a estudiar toda su carrera de nuevo.

Imaginense llegar aca con un una profesión que no es regulada. Por ejemplo trades( carpintero, albañil, maestro , mesero, pizzero). Puede aplicar directamente por empleos o anotarse en una pasantia con pago ( internship)

Pero como saber si hay demanda  esa area? ya hemos dicho que lea sobre perspectivas o estadisticas profesionales que publica el gobierno Federal y provincial en “Labor Market”. y lo que van para Montreal el site de Emploi Quebec cuenta con su sección “Info marché du travail”.

los mejores metodos de encontrar trabajo no son los que salen publicados en workopolis, monster y jobboom sino lo que no son directamente promocionados y que solo puede conseguir atraves de network of contacts asi como contactar los empleadores directamente.

No se olvide de crear una JIST card como herramienta de busqueda, ya que esta le puede servir de mensaje efectivo
para usar en las llamadas  telefonicas.

Qué tienes que hacer si tiene planes de venir a Canada

Qué tiene que hacer si tiene planes de venir a Canada

¿Por qué ahora tantos hispanos escogen Canadá?

Según las Naciones Unidas, Canadá es el país que cada año recibe mayor número de inmigrantes. Además es el segundo país más grande del mundo, cuenta con una economía independiente y sólida que lo lleva a estar dentro de los tres primeros países con mejor calidad de vida por su acceso a la educación, su alta expectativa de vida y sus bajos índices de violencia.

¿Qué hay que hacer si quiero irme a Canadá?

Hay varias opciones para que usted pueda radicarse de manera permanente en Canadá. Antes de empezar el proceso debe saber cuál de ellas se acerca más a su perfil. La opción más común es ser un trabajador calificado y competitivo en el mercado laboral canadiense. Conseguir la residencia también es posible si usted tiene un proyecto para armar empresa, desea invertir en ese país, o si alguna provincia canadiense lo postula para solicitar la visa de residente. Este último proceso debe iniciarlo con el representante de inmigración del lugar deseado. Lo anterior implica que los futuros inmigrantes se radiquen sin ayuda del gobierno y aporten al progreso y desarrollo económico del país. Cualidades como el nivel de estudios, manejo de inglés o francés, y la experiencia laboral son vitales a la hora de decidirse por alguna de estas opciones.

¿Qué otras opciones tiene para vivir en Canadá?

 Hay dos opciones más para que usted reciba la residencia: la primera, si tiene algún familiar mayor de 18 años que tenga la residencia y quiera apoyarlo económicamente entre tres y diez años (por “reunificación familiar”). Y la segunda, si necesita asilo porque corre peligro en su país (estatus de refugiado) ahora mismo en vigencia para Colombianos, Cubanos y Venezonos. En el caso de Colombia, Canadá solo recibe las solicitudes de colombianos víctimas del conflicto armado o que consiguieron patrocinio de algún ente privado canadiense.

 ¿Qué tiene en cuenta el gobierno canadiense al momento de evaluar su solicitud?

La solicitud de la visa para los trabajadores calificados, inversionistas o independientes es calificada a partir de seis indicadores que otorgan cierto número de puntos (mínimo se deben obtener 67 puntos sobre cien). Están distribuidos de la siguiente forma: nivel de Educación (máximo 25 puntos por tener maestría o doctorado), dominio del inglés y/o francés (máximo 24 puntos por dominio total de los dos idiomas), experiencia laboral (máximo 21 puntos por más de cuatro años de experiencia), edad (máximo diez puntos para quienes tengan entre 21 y 49 años), oferta de trabajo en Canadá (máximo diez puntos por tener ya una oferta) y familiaridad con la cultura canadiense, fruto de un viaje anterior o por tener familiares allá, entre otras cosas (máximo 10 puntos).  Además de este puntaje se tienen en cuenta el estado de salud, los antecedentes judiciales y otras variables que el cónsul determina en cada caso.

 ¿Qué otros requisitos debo tener en cuenta?

El proceso de solicitud (evaluación y respuesta) puede tardar meses. Para empezar es necesario llenar los formularios correspondientes a la solicitud de residencia permanente en Canadá, pagar el costo de la aplicación y estar atento a cualquier entrevista o solicitud del consulado. En algunos casos son necesarios los certificados de estudios, documentos de identificación, cartas de referencia del familiar que lo apoya o de la empresa que le ofrece trabajo, documentos que demuestren solvencia económica, certificados de domino del idioma y documentos específicos en casos particulares.

¿Debo adelantar el trámite a través de una agencia?

Usted puede proseguir sin una representación. Sin embargo, hasta el error más pequeño pudiera causar serios daños a su caso. La experiencia nos ha demostrado que muchos de los retrasos experimentados por gente procediendo sin representación son causados por llenar incorrectamente los formularios o por tener documentación de soporte errada. La guía de un abogado o una firma experta le acelerará el proceso y le aumentará sus posibilidades de éxito.  Inmigracion Canada solo publica acerca de  los documentos necesarios y los formularios que se deben presentar.

¿En qué idioma puedo presentar los documentos?

Debe presentar la solicitud en inglés o en francés. Las cartas de recomendación y demás documentos pueden presentarse en español. Casi siempre el oficial lo indica, es decir es necesario traducir los documentos adjuntos.

¿Cuánto cuesta el estudio de los papeles?

 El estudio para la visa de trabajador calificado, inversionista o empresario cuesta _____pesos; y para la de Reunificación Familiar, _____ mil pesos.

¿La provincia de Quebec tiene una condición especial?

Para migrar a Quebec el proceso es diferente. Allí hay una política especial que recibe a miles de inmigrantes francófonos ( dominicanos, venezolanos, colombianos o de cualquier lugar del mundo) que se vayan a trabajar en alguna de sus 17 regiones. El proceso es diferente. Aquí encontrará toda la información necesaria para solicitar la visa permanente.
